“Very comfortable hotel near McGill University, museums, and shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The rooms were very nicely appointed, the bedding was plush, the bed quite comfortable, and the staff was friendly. The hotel is located at the base of Mount Royal, just blocks from dining, museums, and shopping. It is about a 30-45 minute walk to the old city, but there are metro stops (underground) nearby, and bus service to many tourist attraction on Mount Royal.

There is an excellent attached coffee/pastry shop, a restaurant offering a buffet breakfast, and a bar.

This hotel is used by tour buses, so expect a crowded lobby early in the morning as the tours depart. And, the elevators seem to be pretty slow when the tours are loading/unloading the luggage. There are, however, several elevators, so you won't be inconvenienced if you use an alternative elevator.

I cannot say enough about the warm, bright, and friendly reception, hospitality, and service my wife and I and friends received at the Best Western Ville Marie Hotel & Suites in Montreal during our three-day visit to Montreal this August. We had chosen this particular hotel for a reunion because of its central location at Peel and Sherbrooke (halfway between the main shopping area and the mountain) and affordable rates. We were not expecting the kind of warm welcome we received from the General Manager, Mr. Rafik Zikry, who and his courteous and professional front desk staff (Peter, Rami, Richard, and Emily to name a few) were genuinely interested in making our stay as comfortable and as pleasant as possible. I do not remember ever being so warmly welcomed and cared for at any other hotel.

For this reason alone, I would highly recommend the Best Western Ville Marie. But there is more to cheer about: our room was spacious, almost the size of a one bedroom apartments and a den, tastefully furnished, quiet, well kept, and with a window from the den that overlooked the mountain. The lobby area naturally was busy with tourists checking in and out, but it had a welcoming feel to it. On the main floor, there is a restaurant for formal dining, a bar, and a coffee shop. Tucked away in the back there is a large, quiet, and very comfortable sitting area. The hotel met our needs, and much more. The next time we stay in Montreal, it will be at the Best Western Ville Marie.

We stayed here for 3 nights, 2 adults + 2 teens. We had a "junior suite" (I think that's what they called it) which had a queen + pull out sofa bed and we brought our own air bed for the other teen. The room was perfectly fine and typical of what you would expect in a Best Western. We were late getting out of the room two days (actually, our kids were late getting out!) but the staff had no issue with cleaning it as late as 4:30 (I asked how late they could clean it). Our bed was relatively firm which is how we like it

Pros:
- Excellent location in "downtown" Montreal just 2 blocks from the Rue Peel Metro stop. Quite safe even at night. Next door to McGill University and it's museums and literally at the base of the beautiful Mount Royal park (Montreal's Central Park).
- Lots of upscale, trendy type restaurants nearby
- Lots of shopping nearby if you're into that. I'm talking about large, national stores, not boutiques
- Very good middle eastern restaurant in the hotel
- Very good café off the lobby serving sandwiches, coffee, pastries, soft drinks and such
- Very attentive and friendly staff including the general manager, Rafiq
- If you're traveling with teens and want to get them food so you can go out at night there's a McDonalds and a Five Guys nearby as well as an "Anton & James" café nearby (sandwiches and pizza -- the pizza described as "very good" by my two teenagers who are experienced pizza eaters

My only negative comments, and these are really just quibbles, is that we could have used more drawers and that the two rooms of our junior suite did not separate with a door. It's possible that they have suites that do separate with a door but they were not available, I don't know, so if that's important to you then you should ask. It was not really an issue for us.

I rate this as Excellent at its price point. It's not Excellent the way a luxury hotel is, it's excellent for that level of property

Hi there!

I spent 2 weeks at the Best Western Ville-Marie in July, it was my first time in Montreal and the location of the hotel made it so easy for me to visit and enjoy Monreal. The whole staff was amazing. We stayed on the 11th floor and it was really quiet. The room was clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay and I know for a fact that the rest of my team did too.

I know where I'll be staying on my next trip to Montreal.

Thank you

Great location!! Lots to do around. Perfect if you're coming to visit Mcgill. The staff was very friendly and there if you need help for anything! The rooms were okay.. could be better but definitely sufficient for a week.

We checked in really late Sunday August 5th due to Osheaga. Room was spacious and very clean. We would definitely stay here again. 1 lady at the front desk was a little on the snotty side when checking in, but we ended up meeting the manager the next day and he more than made up for it his with his welcoming personality. His name was Rafik, and he was most helpful. He really made the stay very enjoyable, even though were were only there to sleep basically. Parking is only offered by Valet, and it;s 25.00 a night
